Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Petersham

I am selling my home in Petersham. Will the conveyancing practitioner have to be required to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently in recent years.

I have been told that property searches are the primary cause of stalling in Petersham house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the top 10 causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Petersham.

How does conveyancing in Petersham differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Petersham approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because new home sellers in Petersham typically buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Petersham or who has acted in the same development.

Taking into account that I am about to part with over three hundred thousand on a house in Petersham I would like to have a conversation with the solicitor concerning thehome move ahead of giving the go ahead to the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

This is something that we encourage - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the lawyer due to be conducting your property ownership legalities in Petersham.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique person, not a file reference. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are quoted for your conveyancing in Petersham should be the figure that you are charged.

Am I better off to go with a Petersham conveyancing lawyer in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can carry out the conveyancing but his firm is located approximately 350kilometers away.

The benefit of a high street Petersham conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to sign paperwork, deliver your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a bonus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and they were content that must trump using an unfamiliar Petersham conveyancing lawyer just because they are round the corner.
